This class meets once a week for five consecutive weeks and is for women (and their support person) in their sixth and seventh months of pregnancy. The class size is limited to 12 couples and allows closer interaction with the instructor for practice and reinforcement of skills. The class includes discussions about labor, birth and early postpartum; instruction in comfort measures, massage techniques and labor support; and exploration of communication skills between the woman, her support person and members of the health care team. In addition, the class covers what challenges may occur and available options. The class includes a tour of the Family Birth Center.
